Re: Correct way to pronounce Raleigh

weird this, Im in Ireland and 90% of the time you'll hear 'Rally' (same as you would say Sir Walter Raleigh)

the rest of the time its Rall (said like Ball) Lee (like the name)   'Rallee' (tbh my English friend was the one telling us this way after giving out about how we said Rally) smile

Re: Correct way to pronounce Raleigh

being I live in a southern town named Raleigh, I feel obligated to chime in on the matter. I give kudos to Danonino. The capitol of NC is named after it's original  founder/settler Sir Walter Raleigh...pronounced as Rall -lee. My family, with thick Jersey accents cant pronounce it that way to save their life...they say I live in "raw-lee"....hence,  Toe-may-to or toe-matt-o...poe-tate-o or poe-tat-o...I'm not from here or there, so pronounce it as you wish !
